    “To stay there is to experience something approaching the ‘real Tobago’…”

    “Castara Retreats is run by locals, staffed by locals, and any activity you choose to do there – be it snorkelling, or a boat ride around the bay – will be undertaken under the watchful eye of a local. As an example of sustainable integrated tourism, it’s been such a success that the government is using it as a model for further developments.”

    “…Castara Retreats, complex of ‘rustic luxury’ self-catering lodges overlooking the bay…They may not have chocolates on the pillow, but they do have all you could need for a comfortable spell in the Caribbean: glorious west-facing views across the bay, luxurious beds with high quality mosquito nets, a well equipped kitchen…With fretted wooden shutters for walls, there’s no need for air-conditioning, and the openness allows for intimate contact with the island’s incredible fauna.”
